Authorities said they also found what they believed to be an explosive device. Phil Davis, a reporter who covers courts and crime for the paper, tweeted that the gunman shot out the glass door to the office and fired into the newsroom, sending people scrambling for cover under desks.A single shooter shot multiple people at my office, some of whom are dead,Ž he wrote.Davis added: There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while youre under your desk and then hear the gunman reload.ŽThe attacker had mutilated his fingers in an apparent attempt to make it harder to identify him, according to a law enforcement offi-cial who was not authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity. Another official who also spoke on condition of anonymity said investigators identified the man using facial recognition technology.The shooting „ which came amid months of verbal and online attacks on the fake news mediaŽ from politicians and others from President Donald Trump on down„ prompted New York City police to immediately tighten security at news organizations in the nations media capital.At the White House, spokeswoman Lindsay Wal-ters said: There is no room for violence, and we stick by that. Violence is never toler-ated in any form, no matter whom it is against.ŽThe gunman, whose name was not immediately released, was believed to have used a shotgun, accord-ing to a U.S. official who was briefed on the investigation but not authorized to dis-cuss it publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. The gunman was not carrying any identification, authori-ties said.The shooter has not been very forthcoming, so we dont have any information yet on motive,Ž Anne Arun-del County Executive Steve Schuh said. To my knowl-edge, there was no verbal aspect to the incident where he declared his motives or anything else, so at this point we just dont know.ŽAnne Arundel County Acting Police Chief William Krampf confirmed five deaths and said several others were gravely hurt. At least two hospitals said they received three patients, two of them with minor injuries not caused by gunshots.Police spokesman Lt. Ryan Frashure said officers raced to the scene, arriving in 60 seconds, and took the gunman into custody with-out an exchange of gunfire.About 170 people in all were evacuated from the building as a multitude of police cars and other emer-gency vehicles converged on the scene. People could be seen leaving the building with their hands up.The newspaper is part of Capital Gazette Communi-cations, which also publishes the Maryland Gazette and CapitalGazette.com.In an interview with The Capital Gazettes online site, Davis said it was like a war zoneŽ inside the newspapers offices „ a situation that would be hard to describe for a while.ŽIm a police reporter. I write about this stuff „ not necessarily to this extent, but shootings and death „ all the time,Ž he said. But as much as Im going to try to articulate how traumatizing it is to be hiding under your desk, you dont know until youre there and you feel helpless.ŽDavis told the paper he and others were still hiding under their desks when the gunman stopped firing.I dont know why. I dont know why he stopped,Ž he said.New York police sent counterterrorism teams to news organizations around the city in a move authorities said was a precaution, not prompted by any specific threat. Police could be seen outside The New York Times, ABC News and Fox News early in the evening.Gunman kills 5 in attack at Maryland newspaper buildingPolice secure the scene of a shooting at the building housing The Capital Gazette newspaper Thursday in Annapolis, Md.

Gioria-Page, of Leesburg, Florida, passed away on Friday, June 22, 2018. She was 77 years old. A native of Paran, Entre Rios, Argentina, Coca was born on May 26, 1941. She was the youngest of “ve sisters born to Victorio Gioria and Querubina Sedini de Gioria. Coca knew she wanted to be a teacher from a young age and began her college studies and teaching career as an English teacher in Crdoba, Argentina. She was later awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, and in 1963 came to the United States to complete her studies. She received her BS in Education from Southwest Missouri State College in 1967 and her Masters of Arts from Marycrest College, in Davenport, IA, in 1973. Coca married Robert BobŽ Lee Page on June 6, 1965 in Spring“eld, MO. Following college, they moved to Muscatine, IA, where Coca spent the next 35 years as a teacher and Coordinator of Bilingual-Multicultural Education with the Muscatine Community School District, and as a principal of Sacred Heart Cathedral School in Davenport, IA. While in Muscatine, Coca wrote and implemented the citys “rst bilingualmulticultural educational program to help Mexican Migrant students learn English as well as others to learn Spanish. Her passion for education extended well beyond the classroom, though, and she served on a variety of national, state and local educational task forces and committees, advocating for the educational advancement of all children. Coca was equally passionate about civic responsibility. She was an unapologetic champion of social causes, advocating to improve and bring awareness to the issues surrounding equality, human rights, womens rights and gender equity, immigration, and the education and housing opportunities for low income people and migrant workers. A long-time member, and former President of the Muscatine Sister Cities Association, Coca worked to establish sister school relationships between Paran and Crespo, Argentina, and Muscatine, IA, where it was her mission to build a bridge of cultural understanding, international friendship and student exchange for the bene“t of all.Ž Following retirement, she was an active member of the Plantation Democrats Club and continued to volunteer as an aide in public schools. The desire to affect social change was “rmly rooted in Cocas deep faith in God. An active member in her church, St. Pauls Catholic Community, in Leesburg, FL, Coca enjoyed serving as a Minister to the Sick and as a Eucharistic Minister. God put me here to help others,Ž she said. She believed that our duty is to do Gods work on earth by helping anybody who needs help, and that human beings should help and give to one another. Coca and her husband, Bob, were married for 53 years and had two children, Rob and Luca, who both live with their families in Massachusetts. Upon retirement, Coca and Bob moved to The Plantation, Leesburg, FL, where Coca enjoyed making new friends, gathering with them regularly, and being part of the Latin American Club. An animal lover, you would often “nd her taking her poodles on walks through the neighborhood. Cocas greatest loves were her family and friends; her husband, children and grandchildren, her family in Argentina, her dogs, and her students. She enjoyed traveling, and especially enjoyed going on cruises with her husband and her niece, Lucy, visiting her sisters and family in Argentina, and visiting her children and grandchildren in Massachusetts. In addition to her husband, Bob, of FL, Coca is survived by her son, Dr. Robert Edward Lee Page and daughter-in-law, Brenda Page; daughter Luca Mai Page and daughter-in-law, Robin Ashley Grace; four grandchildren, Hayden, Myra, Jackson and Colby, all of MA; and her sister, Leduvina CholaŽ Olinda Sally Gioria, of Argentina.

Eastside Funeral Home, 210 Knott St., Leesburg, FL 352-326-5688CLERMONTBoat ramp project inches aheadThe Clermont City Council voted unani-mously Tuesday to inch forward its plans to build a new boat ramp on Lake Minneola.Tavares-based BESH engineering has completed the conceptual plans. Now that they have the official goahead form council, the firm can refine those plans, which will be brought back to the council for a final vote and then the project will be put out to bid for construction.The city decided to move the boat ramp to make way for Victory Pointe, a massive stormwater treatment area cleverly disguised as a passive nature park. The ramp will move to the site of the old Bell Ceramics business at the east end of Water-front Park.Speaking after the council meeting Tuesday, Gray said he anticipated the completed plans coming back to council, along with a refined estimate of cost, in about two months. The current estimate is $1.4 million. The City has started talking to the water management dis-trict about permitting, according to Gray.My heart goes out to those affected by this devastating wildfire, and I thank all of our partners in the response effort to stop the spread of the fire,Ž Putnam said in a statement.The fire broke out late Sunday in East-point, which is near the historic town of Apala-chicola in Floridas Panhandle. Authorities evacuated the area and no one died as a direct result of the fire, but it left devastation in its wake for local residents who lost everything.I was scared to death. I saw them flames in my backyard „ my whole backyard was on fire when I left,Ž Amanda Hall told the Tallahassee Democrat. When I left I couldnt even see in front of me „ the smoke was so thick. I didnt even know if I was on a road or not.I lost everything „ even my animals. I had no time to get them out,Ž said Hall, who told the newspaper she had six cats. All I got out was my dog because he ran with me.ŽThe fire burned more than 800 acres and officials said they were suspending the practice of control burns statewide while they investigate what happened. Controlled burns are used as a tool to manage forests, which includes burning away underbrush to lessen the danger of future wildfires.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a statement that a private company was contracted to burn 480 acres on June 18. The agency said 580 acres of private land separated the controlled burn from the Eastpoint neighborhood.Doug Williams, the owner of Wildlands Service, told the Tallahassee Democrat he had not been contacted by state officials and did not know that Putnam said investigators had determined his company was responsible for the wildfire. WILDFIREFrom Page A3Blankenship said the assessment could gen-erate up to $325,812 per year that the city would use to cover the cost of fire services provided to residents, operational costs of the department and investments in equipment such as new fire trucks.Blankenship said the biggest expense on the horizon is a $500,000 fire truck the city purchased that will be delivered in February 2019.We needed that truck because the old one is always being repaired,Ž Blanken-ship said. And as far as operational costs, even though our department is considered volunteer, were in service 98 per-cent of the time, which is phenomenal.ŽBlankenship said the fire assessment is also a way for the city to get ahead of the citys anticipated growth, citing 1,200 new homes already approved that could be assessed, making up the differ-ence in taxable values of older homes in the area.We have a small community thats older. Most homes are home-stead exempted, so its not a really high tax value community were working with,Ž Blankenship said. Weve been supporting that with just the ad valorem taxes for years, so this fee will bring us up to date.ŽBlankenship said the fire assessment fees, even at the highest point of the cap, are lower than the countys fire fees.For all residential homes, the assessment is the same amount, he said, since it isdifferent from atax based on property values.Whether your home is worth $5,000 or $500,000, you pay the same assessment fee,Ž Blankenship said. FEESFrom Page A3standpoint for the cats and dogs. Nobody cares too much for what they consider puppy mills. The animals are not pro-tected, they dont get their shots and are being bred in horrible conditions for the purpose of people making a quick buck,Ž Girone said. Basically, the ordinance is putting a stop to that activity.ŽAt the workshop, the only concern was voiced by Council member Laurie Tillett, who asked that the final ordinance include a definition of retailŽ to differentiate more clearly the differ-ence between retail sales and sales by a private breeder.Overall, the consensus was to move the ordinance forward to a Council meeting in July for an official vote.Were doing it because its the right thing to do,Ž said Vice Mayor Cathy Hoechst.

The floor also appeared discolored,Ž the report said.The Medical Examiner confirmed Thursday that Moyer had been struck by lightning.Detectives found his cell phone on the floor and a phone number for his next of kin.One of the neighbors said Moyer was a visitor who came to the area for a few months to go fishing. It was not clear from the report where Moyer lives full-time.Property owner Ed Vaughn told deputies he was a friend of the familys and would help get Moyers personal effects to relatives.The past decade, an average of five people per year have been killed by lightning in Florida, with June, July and August typically having the highest number of fatalities because of the states reliable summer thunderstorms. There are also more people who are outside golfing, fishing and going to the beach.With (five) deaths in Florida already, certainly the death toll is above average given where we are in the season,Ž said John Jensenius, a lighting expert with the National Weather Service. When you are at four and the average is 4.7, thats pretty high for this point in the year.ŽFlorida averages 1.17 million cloud-to-ground lightning strikes per year, following Texas, which averaged 2.92 lighting strikes between 2008 and 2017. But Florida ranks first in cloud-to-ground flashes by square mile with an average of 20.4. Runner up by square mile is Louisiana (18.7), followed by Mississippi (16.6).

Located in a building that also houses the countys chief law-enforcement official, the statue will be guarded around the clock, promised Grenier, who said hes been working on the proposal for two years. And the historian vowed that the relocation would be a permanent move for Smiths statue, another factor the panel considered in its selection process. This building aint going anywhere,Ž he said, adding that the building just underwent a $1 million renovation. The sheriff aint going any-where. The museum aint going anywhere.Ž The Legislature voted in 2016 to remove the Smith statue from the National Statuary Hall, where the general has represented the Sunshine State since 1922. The move to replace the statue came during a nationwide backlash against Confederate sym-bols in the wake of the 2015 shooting deaths of nine African-American wor-shippers at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C. But it wasnt until this year that the Republican-dominated Legislature agreed on a replacement for the Confederate gen-eral, finally settling on civil-rights leader and educator Mary McLeod Bethune. Each state is allowed two representatives in the National Statuary Hall, with Flor-ida also represented by John Gorrie, widely con-sidered the father of air conditioning. During Thursdays meeting, panelist Steve Birtman asked Grenier how he would handle the specter of the Civil War and the role of Smith … who fought in the Mexican-American War and who, after join-ing the Confederacy, was wounded during the First Battle of Bull Run. How are you going to tell the story, the good and the bad, of this Floridian?Ž asked Birtman, who serves on the Florida Historical Commission, adding that Smith took a ballŽ in the shoulder during the First Battle of Bull Run. This whole war was a very dark period in our history and still plagues us today in some respects.Ž Grenier said histori-ans role is to educate the public. Whether its good or bad, history is what it is. Whatever feelings people have, whether theyre negative feelings or positive feelings, whether its hate or racism, whether its heroism or courage or whatever, all comes from us as individuals, whats inside of us,Ž he said. The West Point-educated Smith was born in St. Augustine, but the St. Augustine Foundation failed to finalize a vote on a proposal to relocate the statue to his home-town prior to this weeks deadline, according to Thomas Graham, a pro-fessor emeritus of history at Flagler College. STATUEFrom Page A1court ruling. And justices often are cautious about blowing up precedents. Still, a more conservative court may be more willing to chip away at abortion rights by upholding state restrictions that Kennedy and the four liberal justices would have been likely to strike down. The issue is at the fore-front of the emerging nomination fight because the nine-member court has been so closely divided on abortion, and Kennedy has been a cru-cial fifth vote.At present, lawmakers in several Republicanled states have passed aggressive regulations. They could be emboldened by the prospect of a friendlier court. Among the issues currently in the courts are Arkansas regu-lation of abortion pills and a Kentucky law that would ban a common procedure for second-trimester abortions.Trump himself has predicted Roe would be overturned because I am putting pro-life justices on the court.ŽAt a rally in front of the court Thursday, speaker after speaker pointed to abortion as a way to rally opposition to the eventual nominee, who Trump has said will come from among 25 people he previously identified as candidates.He is going to put some-one on the court who will be the fifth vote to criminalize abortion, punish women and throw them in jail,Ž declared Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America.Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a potential presi-dential candidate in 2020 said, President Trump has told you hes going to nom-inate someone who will get rid of Roe v. Wade.ŽA onetime supporter of abortion rights, Trump attracted support from social conservatives during the presidential campaign in large part because of his strong opposition to abortion.

Heres a look at the shifting environment for deliveries: What are retailers doing to deliver faster? Many have been expanding services that let online shop-pers pick up their orders at the store. But the latest strategy? Delivering products to customers homes on the same day.Walmart plans to expand same-day grocery delivery to more than 40 percent of U.S. households, or 100 metro areas by years end. It will continue to use ride-hailing services but is also testing the use of store employees to drop off merchandise at homes at the end of their work shifts.With its $550 million acqui-sition of logistics startup Shipt, Target plans to roll out same-day delivery nation-wide this year.Amazon and Walmart are also testing smart-lock tech-nologies allowing delivery people to enter a shoppers home and restock the refrigerator.And startups like Deliv are working with retailers such as Best Buy and Macys to deliver products to homes on the same day. What kind of a challenge is this to FedEx and UPS? Amazon uses the big parcel delivery services, along with smaller firms and the post office. But it has also started its own air fleet of 40 planes, rolled out a convoy of trucks and built its own distribution centers.UPS and FedEx leaders have long scoffed at the idea that Amazon could turn from a customer to a competitor, and most analysts have agreed „ and still do so.Losing more of Amazons business would hurt the deliv-ery giants but not crush them. Analysts estimate UPS gets up to 6 percent of its revenue from Amazon deliveries, and FedEx about 3 percent.UPS, for example, uses about 117,000 trucks and 500 planes and employs 2,700 pilots to deliver 20 million packages a day on average worldwide.Quicker delivery of nearly everything is the next big thing

Box 490007, Leesburg, FL 34749-0007 Email: letters@dailycommercial.com Fax: 352-365-1951 For more than a half-century the family of U.S. Air Force Col. Peter Stewart could only speculate what happened to him over in Vietnam. A native of Scotland who lived in Winter Haven, Stewart was a fighter pilot who flew dozens of combat missions during World War II, Korea and Vietnam. According to the Defense Department, Stewarts last mission occurred on a fateful spring day 52 years ago when his F-4 Phantom erupted in ball of fire while engaging enemy trucks. The military could not conduct any search or recovery operations in the immediate wake of the incident because conditions on the ground were too risky. Thus, the Pentagon initially declared Stewart missing in action, and a few years later updated that to killed in action. It appeared he was lost forever to his widow, Marnie, and the couples six children. The family, however, finally received word this past spring that Col. Stewart would be coming home after all. The Defense Department says that in 2014 a joint U.S.Vietnamese search team found an F-4 crash site in the Dien Bien Province. Further investigation and subsequent testing revealed last June that some remains belonged to Col. Martin Scott of Oklahoma. But the team kept digging and uncovered more. Based on dental records and a St. Christopher medal recovered at the scene, the military eventually identified them as Col. Stewart. His remains were returned to Florida earlier this month, and Stewart was given a funeral with full military honors last week. Despite the decades-long wait to put their loved one to rest, and their minds at ease, Marnie Stewart, now 94, and her children are among the lucky ones. When the Paris Peace Accords, which ended Americas involvement in Vietnam, were inked in 1973, the Pentagon determined that 2,646 American troops were unaccounted for in Southeast Asia. The accords contained a stipulation authorizing efforts to find American MIAs. While a few dozen were found shortly after the agreement was reached, the searches ended following the Communist takeover of Vietnam in 1975. It wasnt until 1992 that joint, large-scale search efforts were organized. Those continue today. Stewart is among 1,049 Americans located and recovered from Vietnam during those hunts. That leaves 1,597 Americans still unaccounted for from Vietnam. That list includes 54 Floridians. The government reports that number is just the tip of the iceberg, too. More than 82,000 U.S. troops are considered unaccounted for from wars dating back to World War II. What impresses us is that the government, as it did with Col. Stewart, has not stopped looking for answers. Just this month, for instance, the Defense Departments Accounting Agency reports that it verified the remains of four sailors from the USS Oklahoma, which was sunk at Pearl Harbor, as well as a trio of Army and Marine infantrymen who were lost, respectively, in the Tarawa Atoll in 1943, Germany in 1944 and North Korea in 1950. The recovery procedure also goes both ways. Six months ago, for example, Pentagon officials in Hawaii welcomed a contingent from Japan to turn over the remains of 13 Japanese soldiers found in Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Tarawa. We appreciate and applaud the diligence of American officials and the cooperation of governments in Vietnam and elsewhere in helping U.S. families find closure. Ocala Star-BannerOUR OPINIONThey never stop looking ANOTHER OPINION It wont quit. Critics of President Donald Trump screech profanities on TV, they throw press secretaries out of restaurants and one of them on Tuesday said the Supreme Courts upholding of a travel ban was the equivalent of one of the worst things it has ever done. That would be allowing Japanese-American citizens to get locked up in concentration camps during World War II, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor wasnt through yet. In a dissent, she wanted the world to know that Trump had called for a complete Muslim ban during the campaign, and that this very act, an example of his recurring religious bias, was all the evidence needed that his ban was a disgrace to America, the Constitution, all we stand for. What we had here was still another example of an overreaching Trump adversary aiming to do more damage to our precious system of governance than he could come up with at his very worst. The occasion was a 5-to-4 decision upholding his effort to keep terrorists from coming our way from countries where they are plentiful and where vetting is a lost cause the United States is trying to restore. Chief Justice John Roberts got at the truth of things in his ruling that said it was not the job of the court to judge Trumps statements but to judge whether they influenced what he did. They didnt. There was no religious discrimination in the ban. It was religiously neutral. It was also well within the presidents authority and responsibilities as decided, not by emotions riding high, but by statutes. This decision, he wrote, was in no way akin to OKing the racist roundup of Japanese-Americans, something that was objectively illegal and scarcely a presidential prerogative. Sotomayors contrary contention strikes me as saying she cares not a whit for rule of law, just as lower courts ruling against Trumps second and third bans were doing serious, politicizing harm to a judiciary thereby rendered less credible. To not a few leftists out there, the decision was just another instance of conservatives outnumbering liberals on the court. It was more than that. It was the people believing in the most obvious meanings of the Constitution outnumbering those who want to reform it into vaporous ideals they can then twist anyway they like. Their take is that the 18th century document is outdated and that playing loose is the way to go. The real solution, if they are right about a need for change, is the legitimate amendment process that requires widespread consensus. Sometimes it has seemed we do not even have a Constitution anymore, just an oligarchy of nine people taking the place of Congress. With one appointment, that of Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump has done much to keep constitutionality in place, as was shown by still another decision Tuesday. California had written a law saying that antiabortion, crisis pregnancy centers must advertise where abortions can be had, which is kind of like saying Republican headquarters should advertise speeches by socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders. The First Amendment has something to say about this, as did another 5-to-4 court decision that, of course, still allows the state government to advertise all it wants. Liberty lives on, at least for a while. Jay Ambrose is an op-ed columnist for Tribune News Service.

For nearly a month we have a new carrier, and we have been regularly delivered the wrong mail. Other people have received our mail „ at least the ones we know about. Packages that do not fit in our box are left out unprotected „ along with the mail. Numerous visits to the post office and phone calls to the postmaster have yielded a limited response and no improvement. The best and only response from our postmaster has been, I will ask him to do better.Ž I have now heard this response from the postmaster, the clerk (who can only report this to the postmaster) and most unbelievably, from the carriers boss, the contractor for our postal delivery route. I will ask him to do better. lm now having my mail held for pick up. Checks, credit cards, bank statements and all your personal information are in your mail. Youd think that 30 days of on-the-job training should be more than enough. I bet UPS or FedEx could get the job done.Steven Hubschman, PaisleyCivility and objectivity toward Trump lacking How refreshing to actually enjoy the Daily Commercial editorial page on Sunday, June 24. Finally, at least something President Trump isnt blamed for, as well as the civil, intelligent article by John Cohn of Tavares. Daniel Andrews, Barry McAlister, and others should learn from Mr. Cohns writing how to express their views without resorting to lies and vituperation. I cant help but wonder what has happened to decency, civility, respect for other viewpoints and common sense. Is it because the media refuses to report facts and progress, preferring to highlight bias and out and out lies, accompanied by cheap, trashy political cartoons? Could it be the wanna-be comedians, celebrities, politicians, television personalities and washed up actors who seem to think the way to get attention is to shout out ugly, vulgar, disgusting and profane opinions about our duly elected president and his family? Many of us didnt like Obama, but we didnt get violent about it. How about protesters who attack people they dont agree with in public places, and even at their homes where they endanger families? Is the corruption in high government offices and the denigration of law enforcement as a whole to blame? All of this has a trickledown effect on normal people who now seem to feel that anything goes and they have the right to judge. The late Charles Krauthammer is being lauded, not only for his intellect, but for his kindness. Kindness, civil discourse, respect, while not agreeing with opposing views, and common decency, is the way, as the old saying goes, to win friends and influence people.

The discipline stems from the leagues investigation of an accusation that the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner groped a female Uber driver during a ride the quarterback took in Arizona, where Winston was attending a charity event in March 2016. The driver did not file a criminal or civil complaint, however she reported the incident to Uber. The NFL learned of the allegation, when it was reported pub-licly last November. The league promptly initiated a comprehensive investigation that included interviews with several per-sons, including the driver, Winston and others with relevant information,Ž the NFL said in a statement announcing the suspension. The league also examined an extensive amount of other evidence, including telephone records, business records, data from electronic devices and other communications.Ž The Bucs drafted Winston No. 1 overall in 2015, despite questions about the young quarterbacks behav-ior during his college career at Florida State. Winston, 24, was accused The Buc stops here By Ronald BlumThe Associated PressMOSCOW „ The thunder-clapping Icelanders have gone home, along with the Egyptians and Peruvians. Now comes the business end of the World Cup, a Europeanand South American-dominated club that rejects most new applicants as unwanted hoi polloi.The group stage is the crossroads of cultures, a mix-ture of multitudes filled with happiness and hope.Then comes the knockout stage, where soccers powers pump their pecs and the blue bloods almost always prevail.Ten European nations reached the round of 16, matching 1998 and 2006 for the most since 11 in 1990, the record since the current format began in 1986.Four South American teams have advanced, plus Mexico and Japan. For the first time since 1982, no African team made it past the first round.History is instructive: Europe earned 41 of 64 quarterfinal berths and South America took 16 since 1986. Among the other regions, Africa and CONCACAF got three apiece and Asia one.Winnowing to the inner sanctum becomes even more pronounced after that: Europe filled 23 of 32 semifinal spots and South America eight, with South Korea in 2002 at home becoming the only outsider to reach the final four.Among 20 previous World Cups, Europe has lifted the trophy 11 times and South America nine.Germanys departure was the biggest group phase jolt. Projected by many as the first repeat winner since Brazil in 1958 and 62, Die Mannschaft became the fourth champion in five tournaments to exit early.FIFA has favored the bottom of the bracket with far easier travel, with the Russia-Spain winner headed from Moscow to a quarterfinal in Sochi, then potentially a semifinal and the final in the capital. The Colombia-England winner in Moscow goes to a quarterfinal in Samara, then would be on track to finish at Moscow. A look at the Round of 16: SATURDAYFRANCE VS. ARGENTINA Lionel Messi & Co. were on the verge of elimination before Marco Rojos 86th-minute goal against Nigeria. With an average age of 26, France is among the youngest teams, led by dynamic 19-year-old striker Kylian Mbappe. At 31, this likely is Messis last chance for the World Cup title he needs to Europe, South America dominate knockout phase Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston th rows during an NFL football minicamp in Tampa. Winston has been suspended for the “ rst three games of the regular season for violating the NFLs personal conduct policy. Winston says in a statement released on Facebook that the NFL informed him of their decision on Thursday. [AP PHOTO/CHRIS OMEARA, FILE] By Howard FendrichThe Associated PressLONDON „ Go back 15 years, to the start of Wimble-don in June 2003, and take a glimpse at where things stood for Roger Federer.He was 21. He had yet to reach No. 1 in the ATP rankings. Not only had the guy never won a Grand Slam tour-nament, hed never even been past the quarterfinals at one. He was coming off a first-round loss at the French Open a month earlier, and another at the All England Club a year earlier. When all was said and done two weeks later, Federer was crying, cradling the cham-pions gold trophy.And now? When play begins at Wimbledon on Monday, with Federer closing in on his 37th birthday, he will have the honor of playing the first match at Centre Court as the defending champion. He earned his record eighth title at the grass-court major a year ago, and he ran his total Grand Slam haul to a record 20 mens singles trophies by winning the Australian Open in January.I dont know how much longer its going to last,Ž Federer said. I have no idea.ŽHe was speaking about his own success. But he might as well have been talking about the two-man supremacy exhibited by himself and his greatest rival, Rafael Nadal.15 years after 1st Slam, Federer back to defend at WimbledonIn this July 6, 2003 photo, Switzerlands Roger Federer holds the Mens Singles trophy after defeating Australias Mark Philippoussis in the “ nal of the All England Lawn Tennis Championships on the Centre Court at Wimbledon, in London.

Abel was nothing short of spectacular against an Arkan-sas team still reeling from the foul ball fiasco in the ninth inning Wednesday night that cost it the title and gave new life to the Beavers. He retired the last 20 Arkansas batters, catching Luke Bonfield looking at strike three on a 3-2 pitch to end the game. The title is Oregon States third, and first since it won the second of two straight in 2007, and came at the end of a two-year run in which the Beavers have won 111 of 130 games. Oregon State (55-12-1), which came from behind for three of its six CWS wins, was in control all the way in the winner-take-all Game 3. Arkansas (48-21) was shut out for the first time in 100 games. Abel (8-1) ran into trouble in the third when Arkansas loaded the bases with one out. He struck out Heston Kjerstad and got Bonfield to fly out to end the inning, and the Razor-backs had no base runners the rest of the night. Abel struck out 10 and walked two in a 129-pitch outing.Adley Rutschman, who set a CWS record with 17 hits, went 3 for 4 and drove in two runs. He was 17 for 30 (.567) with 13 RBIs in eight games and was named the CWS Most Outstanding Player. Rutschman singled his first three times at bat and drove in a run in the first and another in the third for a 3-0 lead. Abel had been used as a starter and reliever this Oregon State claims national championshipSee CWS, B3

Theyre having fun and they always know they have a shot, always. That makes them so much more fun to coach they dont get uptight, they dont get down. They just play.They play hard and they know that they always have a chance to come out on top.ŽTrailing 10-9 heading into the bottom of the 10th, the Lightning began the home half of the frame with Jose Crisostomo at second „ per FCSL rules, teams put a runner at second base to begin each half-inning in extra innings „ and Suns reliever Nick DeTringo walked Javeon Cody to set the stage for May.And the Lightning short-stop wasted little time putting an end to the nearly four-hour marathon. May hammered DeTringos second pitch over the leftcenter field fence, capping a 2-for-6 game with, argu-ably, his biggest hit of the season.I knew that (DeTringo) didnt have any off-speed (pitches), so I was ready for the fastball,Ž said May. Once I saw the fastball (and hit it), I knew it was gone.ŽPedro Reyes-Ruiz picked up the win in relief, his second in two decisions this season. He pitched the ninth and 10th innings, surrendering one hit and one run „ the run in the 10th „ and struck out two while throwing 15-of-20 pitches for strikes. DeTringo took the loss.DeLand (10-9) took a 2-0 lead in the first off Lightning starter Ronny Hinton. Hintons coun-terpart, Ryan Fultz, made the lead stand up until the fourth, when Cody and May scored to tie the game.The Suns regained the lead with a three-run top of the fifth, but the advantage proved to be short-lived when the Lightning plated three in the bottom of the inning.Leesburg (14-2) took its first lead of the game at 8-6 with three more runs. Sean Mootrey, Gar-rett Bogart and Harrison Schnurbusch scored for the Lightning.The back-and-forth affair took another turn in the seventh when DeLand scored three for a 9-8 advantage.In the bottom of the ninth, Walker McCleney led off with a walk. Jay Prather, a late-inning substitute at third, nearly ended the game with a towering blast down the right-field line for a double, moving McCleney to third.Tucker walked to load the bases and Tanner Clark, another late-inning replacement, was passed on four pitches to score McCleney with the tying run.Both teams combined for 30 hits. There were seven lead changes and three ties in the game.Cody, May, Schnurbusch and Weeks paced the Lightning with two hits apiece. Cody scored three runs, while May and Bogart each scored twice.For DeLand, Scout McFalls, Geordon Blanton, Trent Taylor and Chris Burgess had three hits apiece.The Lightning travel to Winter Garden for games on today and Saturday.Lightning win 1210 on 10th-inning, 3-run blast CHARLOTTE, N.C.NFL “ nes ex-Panthers owner $2.75MThe NFL has fined former Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson $2.75 million following its investigation into sexual and racial misconduct in the workplace.The league said Thurs-day the investigation conducted by former U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White substantiated allegations against Richardson, that the improper conduct was limited to Richardson and that the team failed to report the allegations or any resolution agree-ments to the league.The league also says most of the money will go toward organizations that address racialand gen-der-based issues in and outside the workplace.LONDONPast Wimbledon runners-up qualifyTwo past runners-up at Wimbledon, Eugenie Bouchard and Vera Zvonareva, earned their way into the main draw at the All England Club by making it through qualifying.Bouchard, who lost to Petra Kvitova in the 2014 final, won her last match in the preliminary rounds 6-3, 6-2 against Mariana Duque-Marino on Thursday. The Canadian is ranked 191st. Zvonareva, beaten by Serena Williams in the 2010 Wimbledon final, got past 19-year-old American Caroline Dole-hide 6-2, 6-3 in qualifying Thursday.

DailyCommercial.com | Friday, June 29, 2018 B3of raping a fellow student at FSU, but was never charged. The university settled a Title IX lawsuit over its han-dling of the allegations with Winston's accuser, Erica Kinsman, in January 2016 for $1.7 million. Winston said in his state-ment Thursday that "in the past 2 years my life has been filled with experiences, opportunities and events that have helped me grow, mature and learn." Winston added that he has eliminated alcohol from his life. Winston, who's thrown for 11,636 yards and 69 touchdowns in three NFL seasons, has started 45 of the Bucs' past 48 games. He missed three games last season with a shoulder injury and the Bucs finished 5-11, missing the playoffs for the 10th straight season. He will miss the Bucs' season opener at New Orleans on Sept. 9, as well as homes games against defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. He will be eligible to return to the team on Sept. 25, the day after Tampa Bay plays the Steelers. The league said Winston is also required to have a clinical evaluation and coop-erate in any recommended program of therapeutic intervention. "All members of our organization are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the personal conduct policy of the NFL," the Bucs said in a statement. "We are disappointed that Jameis put himself in a position that has been found to violate the policy and accept today's decision by the commissioner." The suspension will cost Winston $124,411 of his base salary of $705,000 for the upcoming season. The quarterback is set to earn $20.9 million in 2019. WINSTONFrom Page B1match Diego Maradona in the minds of many Argentinians. While Argentina struggled, France must awaken from a somnambulant group-stage “ nale against Denmark. URUGUAY VS. PORTUGAL Cristiano Ronaldo, like Messi a “ ve-time FIFA Player of the Year, has four goals in the tournament and leads the European champions against a Uruguay team known foremost for the bite marks Luis Suarez left in Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini four years ago. Uruguay is the leastpopulous of the round of 16 teams.SUNDAYSPAIN VS. RUSSIA World Cup hosts outside the soccer powers usually perform better than expected. Russia should have huge support at Luzhniki Stadium, making it closer than the 10th vs. 70th matchup in the rankings. Andres Iniesta, who scored the goal that won Spains “ rst World Cup title in 2010, remains on a rebuilt roster that struggled defensively in the group stage. CROATIA VS. DENMARK Tottenham past vs. Spurs present, with Luka Modric leading Croatia and Christian Eriksen sparking Denmark. Croatia was among the most impressive group-stage teams, beating Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland by a combined 7-1.MONDAYBRAZIL VS. MEXICO El Tri fans hope for the elusive quinto partidoŽ „ to reach a World Cup quarter“ nal for the “ rst time since 1986, which was on home soil. This is their best chance in years, with an attack led by Javier Hernandez and Carlos Vela. Center back Hector Moreno is suspended for yellow-card accumulation. Brazilian players are trying to atone for the 7-1 hum iliation against Germany in the semi“ nals at home four years ago. BELGIUM VS. JAPAN Belgium was among three teams to go 3-0 in group play, joining Croatia and Uruguay, and No. 61 Japan will be a heavy underdog against the third-ranked Red Devils. Star forward Romelu Lukaku started the World Cup with consecutive two-goal games but missed Belgiums group-stage “ nale with an ankle injury.TUESDAYSWEDEN VS. SWITZERLAND In its “ rst World Cup in the post-Zlatan Ibrahimovic era, Sweden is looking to get past the round of 16 for the “ rst time since “ nishing third in 1994. Swedish mid“ elder Sebastian Larsson is suspended, as are Swiss defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner and Fabian Schaer. Switzerland is led by mid“ elders Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka. COLOMBIA VS. ENGLAND Harry Kane, whose “ ve goals lead the World Cup, heads a young England team that “ nished group play without a shutout for the “ rst time. Los Cafeteros, led by James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao, were the only team to reach the round of 16 after losing their opener.Nadal, 32, hadnt even entered a major tournament in 2003. These days, he trails only Federer in the all-time mens Grand Slam standings, with 17 of his own, including No. 11 at the French Open just this month.Remarkably, especially given all of the talk in recent years about their supposed declines, Federer and Nadal have divvied up all of the past six major titles, claiming a trio apiece.Its their longest such stretch since grabbing six consecutive majors in 2008-09, which included Nadals 9-7 fifth-set victory over Federer in the 2008 Wimbledon final, considered by many to be the greatest tennis match ever. The duos best run was 11 Slams in a row from 2005-07, when Federer won eight and Nadal the other three.This is perfection. They are the best players in the world and are proving that even when your body is not as young as it was, when one still has the drive and is well pre-pared, nothing replaces talent and strong will,Ž said French Open tournament director Guy Forget, a former top-five player and captain of Frances Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams. The young players are still lagging behind.ŽYes, all these years later, Roger and Rafa are still lead-ing the way.One other indication: They have swapped the No. 1 rank-ing a half-dozen times in 2018, the most its switched hands in a single season since 1999. As of now, Nadal is No. 1, and Federer No. 2 „ but just barely, with a 50-point gap between them. Because Wimbledons seeding system takes into account the mens success on grass, Federer is No. 1, and Nadal No. 2, in the draw.This is the fifth time that they are seeded 1-2, and first since 2010. Each of the other four times, one or the other collected the title: Nadal in 2008 and 2010, Federer in 2006 and 2007.They won everything „ both of them won every-thing, and not only once, but so many times,Ž said Robin Soderling, who lost to Federer in the 2009 French Open final (after upsetting Nadal along the way) and Nadal in the 2010 French Open final (after upsetting Federer along the way). But they are still hungry.ŽThey manage their schedules more carefully in their 30s: Federer skipped the clay-court circuit, while Nadal opted not to play any grass-court tuneups before arriving at the All England club.Hes a two-time champion and three-time runner-up at Wimbledon, but Nadal had some trouble at the place lately, failing to get past the fourth round in any of his past five appearances, with a quar-tet of losses to players ranked 100th or worse.Wimbledon has always been difficult for us,Ž said Nadals uncle and former coach, Toni, but I believe that he will have his chance if he is physically fit.ŽIts good health that has stood in the way of Novak Djokovic (elbow), Andy Murray (hip) and Stan Waw-rinka (knee), who all are in various stages of returning from operations.But here are Federer and Nadal, as good as ever.Maybe even better than ever?I dont know. Its hard to tell. It doesnt really matter to me. I would hope that Im a better player today, just because of the virtue of time thats gone by and Ive had time to practice and train and all that stuff,Ž Federer said. But its different times today than it was 10, 15 years ago.Ž WORLD CUPFrom Page B1 FEDERERFrom Page B1 season, and his versatility and durability were important for the depleted Oregon State pitching staff. Abel pitched an inning of relief to earn the win Wednes-day. That as four days after he started and allowed three hits and a run in seven innings against Mississippi State. On June 18 he pitched four innings of one-hit, one-run relief against Washington. Oregon State's title came a year later than many expected. The Beavers were by far the most dominant team in the nation through the 2017 regu-lar season and brought a 54-4 record to Omaha. But after winning their first two games here, they made a stunningly meek exit with two straight losses to LSU. They brought back almost everybody in the everyday lineup along with ace Luke Heimlich. Finishing the job was their mantra. Oregon State was the No. 3 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and swept its regional and super regional to return to the CWS. In Omaha, the Beavers took a circuitous route to the championship. They lost their opening game and came from behind in two of the four elimination games they had to win to reach the finals. Facing elimination again in Game 2 of the finals, Arkansas failed to catch a two-out pop foul in the ninth inning that would have secured the Razorbacks' first national title. The Bea-vers, down to their last strike, rallied to force the winner-take-all game on Thursday. Other than Abel, no Oregon State starting pitcher made it past five innings. AllPac 12 center fielder Steven Kwan has missed most of the CWS with a left hamstring injury.

DailyCommercial.com | Friday, June 29, 2018 C1 DRIVETom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.com Powered by Q: How can I find a wiring schematic and instructions how to access the connections for the locking/ unlocking circuit for the doors on a 2006 Camry? The problem started slowly: once a week, then more often, until it totally stopped unlocking the three passenger doors. No problem locking, no problem unlocking the driver side door, or locking all doors on one click. I took the car to the dealership, and they confirmed the problem and said it would take a new part, costing $2,200, including labor. They also charged $170 to confirm what I told them about the problem. No troubleshooting was done. I phoned the dealership again, saying I just wanted the opening wire for the passenger doors connected to the driver side door wire, and have all the doors open on one click, just as I can lock all doors with one click. A later phone call advised me that a repair kit with two relays was available online, but the labor cost would be close to the new part quoted. Your advice and comments will be greatly appreciated. I am 88, on crutches and not able to do the work myself. „ Volkmar S. A: Oh boy, sometimes modern vehicles can make the most basic chores complicated! Your body electronic control unit (ECU) sends commands to your door lock actuators based on inputs from your key fobs and door switches. The driver's door lock/unlock commands are a different circuit than the remaining three doors so that one click of the fob can unlock just the driver's door and a second click unlocks the remaining doors. Power door locks are not that different from power windows, seats and mirrors in that the door lock actuators are tiny bi-directional motors. Applying a positive and negative command locks the doors and reversing the circuit polarity unlocks them. You indicated that the lock function works fine, which proves out all of the wiring and door lock actuators, leaving only the control unit, the body ECU, as the problem. My hunch is the driver within the ECU (typically a cluster of four transistors, called an H-gate) is not up for the task of powering three door lock actuators simultaneously in the unlock direction. As mechanical systems age and become stiff to operate (the door lock/latch units) the electrical current needed to push them increases, and this is what eventually takes out the driver. I think your best bet is to contact the person on eBay selling a $130 door lock repair kit for your car (search for "Toyota door lock fix" to find this). He/she is apparently using a couple of relays to connect the three door circuits to the driver's door circuit, with seven needed electrical connections. The relays are a good idea as they can deliver robust battery/ fused power to the door lock actuators without burdening UNDER THE HOODDoor lock system causing aggravation Robert DufferTribune News ServiceBack when I was learning how to drive and presidential scandals focused on interns with blue dresses, Mitsubishi sold sports coupes in the United States. My dad bought into the fastest growing car company of the '90s with a 195-horsepower Mitsubishi Eclipse with a five-speed manual. It might have been an Eagle Talon. Same difference.When the all-new 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross showed up in my driveway, there was what shrinks call cognitive dissonance. Memories of a manual sports coupe clashed with a cross-over with more safety aids than a preschool. A sign of the times, to be sure.Aside from the budgetor-bust Mirage, Mitsubishi only sells crossovers in the U.S. now. The strategy has resulted in year-overyear sales growth since 2012. Other automakers are ditching cars for crossovers too. It's hard to say the comparatively tiny Japa-nese brand is influencing the market, but the diamond star is currently the only automaker offering a vehicle at the convergence of two unstoppable trends in the plug-in hybrid midsize SUV Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.The Eclipse Cross is the most important vehicle for the brand's survival and growth in the U.S. It is a compact crossover compet-ing with the Nissan Rogue, Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V and so many others in Amer-ica's best-selling segment.The Eclipse Cross is not sporty like its namesake but is very well-appointed at a very good price. The tester came with all-wheel drive, power folding side mirrors, adaptive cruise control, Apple CarPlay and all the latest modern touches for just over $31,000 in top SEL trim. That's at least a few thousand less than the competition. Undercutting the competition is a strategy that has worked well with the Outlander too.It has the edgy angularity of the latest crop of Japanese crossovers, with a sloping rear and rising beltline that gives it a pinched end. There's an integrated roof spoiler but then things get odd; to improve rear visibility, or to stand out in a cookie-cutter class, there is another spoilerlike bar that splits the rear windshield, not unlike the Toyota Prius. That bar houses the LED tail-lights and the third safety light. It's different. It made many people ask about the brand and model, with mixed remarks on the over-all design.The parade of new crossovers and utility vehicles marched on throughout auto show season, with dozens or new and redesigned cross-overs set to hit dealer lots in midto late-2018 for model year 2019. The differences are in the details.From the inside the split rear glass is annoying in the rear view mirror. Because the rear roofline is so tapered, I'm not sure how else Mitsubishi could have increased visibility. It's cramped to look out, but not cramped to sit in for rear seat passengers or for cargo. This class is all about compromise.The soft touch black sur-faces contrast nicely with the chromelike trim pieces for an upscale feel. The center console houses a touch pad to control the 7-inch display screen. Touch pads have proven sensitive to use while driving, but the larger display on Apple CarPlay and Android Auto simplify the process. The steering wheel A sign of the timesMitsubishi shows signs of life with 2018 Eclipse CrossThe 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a compact crossover powered by a 152-horsepower 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder engine wiht a continuously variable transmission in all-wheel drive.

LaReauTribune News ServiceDETROIT „ Chevrolet is adding a midsized SUV to its lineup next year.The Blazer will be a tworow SUV, taking on the Ford Edge, Nissan Murano and Jeep Grand Cherokee. It is the first and only two-row mid-sized SUV offered by General Motors.Chevrolet is adding the Blazer to appease consumers' growing appetites for larger, roomier vehicles, said Steve Majoros, director for Chevrolet marketing for cars and crossovers."It's a reaction to the fundamental market change to SUVs," said Majoros.Consumer demand for midsized SUVs is increasing. January through April, the midsized SUV market share in the U.S. has grown by nearly 1 percentage point from a year before, Majoros said.That means 11.5 percent of U.S. car owners drive a mid-size SUV, he said. Chevrolet expects the segment's growth to outpace the demand for three-row midsized SUVs going forward, he said.Put simply: "You can't have too many in the lineup," Majoros said. "And this is an addition to our portfolio rather than an update, so it will bring new customers."Chevrolet views the vehicle as resistant to rising fuel prices."In the last fuel shock we had in 2008 and 2009, the midsize SUVs remained really strong. The segment didn't disappear," said Rick Spina, executive chief engineer for compact and crossover SUVs. "Consumers today, when they think of general fuel economy and the economics, they know fuel economy is good across all segments."Chevrolet has improved retail sales in recent years in part because it has been able to attract new customers with products such as the Bolt EV, the Colorado small pickup and the Trax crossover, said Majoros. In the first quarter, Chevrolet reported total sales rose 3.6 percent from the year-ago quarter to 957,343 vehicles.The brand finished 2017 with an 11.2 percent market share, up one full percentage point from four years ago, he said."The introduction of the all-new Blazer builds on that momentum and further strengthens the most compre-hensive lineup of crossovers and SUVs on the market today," said Alan Batey, GM's president of North America and head of global Chevrolet in a statement.The 2019 Blazer, which will be built at GM's manufactur-ing plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, will come to market early next year, Majoros said. He declined to be more specific on a time frame, and Chevrolet is not yet releasing Chevrolet brings back Blazer to target midsize SUV hunger The Blazer will be a two-row SUV, taking on the Ford Edge, Nissan Murano and Jeep Grand Cherokee. It is the “ rst and only two-row midsized SUV offered by General Motors. [CHEVROLET/TNS] Brad BergholdtSee LOCK, C2 See ECLIPSE, C2 See BLAZER, C2

LOCKFrom Page C1the SUV's price."The Edge and Murano are at the lower end of the aver-age transaction price and the Jeep Grand Cherokee is on the high end," said Majoros. "We're going to be com-petitive across the spectrum because of the trim levels."The 2018 Nissan Murano starts at $30,800, the 2018 Ford Edge starts at $29,315 and the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a starting price of $30,895.Chevrolet will offer three trim levels: The Blazer, the RS and the Premiere. The Blazer is the base, the RS trim is sporty with more monotone accents and the Premiere is sophisticated with chrome accents.Majoros said Chevrolet will start to advertise the SUV early next year across all forms of media. The typi-cal buyer of a two-row SUV has income of $130,000 to $140,000 a year, said Majoros. The design of the vehicle is intended to reflect that level of success."It's about anyone who appreciates high style," said Mike Pevovar, exterior design director of Chevrolet Blazer. "It's more of a 'me' vehicle. It's allowed to be a little bit selfish." BLAZERFrom Page C1The soft touch black surfaces of the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross contrast nicely with the chromelike trim pieces for an upsca le feel. [MITSUBISHI/TNS] controls are basic, which is good, but then theres another button behind the steering wheel to scroll through the vehicle info display, which is mildly inconvenient.The 152-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine is new. Its not powerful but it delivers enough burst to make passing moves with confidence. Power is transmitted to all wheels via a continuously variable transmission that has paddle shifters, which was another source of dissonance for my shrink. You can make it feel like youre shifting gears, but the system will override you pretty regularly.The ride is on the louder side on the highway, no doubt due in part to the doors and the panoramic sunroof (part of the $2,500 touring package with advanced driver assistance systems such as forward collision and lane departure warnings).Minor complaints aside, the Eclipse Cross is crucial for the brand and a good option for value-oriented consum-ers. The powertrain and ride quality is not as refined as the Honda CR-V but it would be hard to notice if you havent had a new car in some time. The price and the timing are right. ECLIPSEFrom Page C1

DEAR ABBY: My wife's niece, a high school senior, is a beautiful girl with an excellent, well-proportioned gure. Like many girls her age, she's narcissistic and obsessed with her looks, and constantly posting pictures of herself on social media. She's off to college in a few months, and "in order to ensure she's attractive to boys," wants to get a boob job. She works in a clothing store and has saved toward the cost. Her mother and aunt are supportive and willing to help her pay for it. Their logic is, they both had boob jobs. However, they had theirs done well into their 40s, after their children were born and as clear-thinking adults. I feel being supportive of an 18-year-old making such a major decision for what I think is the wrong reason is irresponsible parenting. I know it's absolutely none of my business, and I won't say a word, but I wonder what your commonsense opinion is. They do read your column. -RATIONAL UNCLE IN THE WEST DEAR UNCLE: I agree with you that getting breast enhancement surgery to be more attractive to boys is doing it for the wrong reason. But my "commonsense" opinion is that if the cosmetic surgery is approved by the girl's mother and aunt, for your own safety, you should stay out of the mineeld.DEAR ABBY: My 23-yearold son, "John," got his girlfriend, "Jane," pregnant. Everyone seemed to be happy -I know I was -even though they were not going to get married. Well, they had a big ght and Jane moved out. They say their relationship is over and irreparable. I want to have a baby shower for my son because he is going to need stuff at his house, too. Jane does not want to attend. Can I have a baby shower for my son? -GRANDMA IN WAITING DEAR GRANDMA: Under the circumstances, a shower for your son would be appropriate for the reason you stated in your letter. Jane's absence should not prevent there from being one. However, I hope with time the drama will subside, and Jane will realize children need both parents present in their lives and will be able to successfully co-parent with your son.DEAR ABBY: Over the past few months, my husband and I have been getting phone calls claiming we have been charged with a crime and face dire consequences if we don't return the call immediately. As a recent law enforcement retiree, my husband knows these calls are bogus. Please remind your readers NO ONE is ever informed of legitimate legal action against them by a pre-recorded phone call. This includes the IRS. Notice of legitimate action is sent through the postal service or personally delivered by a court-designated representative, usually the police. I don't want any of your readers, especially retirees, to fall victim to this scam. -RETIREES, WATCH OUT! DEAR READERS: If you haven't heard or read about this kind of scam -which can be very scary -please share this item with friends and relatives. I received one of these messages about six months ago, and one of my staff members got one a few days ago. Do not engage with these con artists. If you happen to pick up the phone, say nothing and just hang up. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Others might not know what to expect, but they will enjoy relating to you. You certainly are not boring. If you are single, nding the right person might be like going through a maze. Know that someone of signicance is likely to enter your life at any time this year. If you are attached, the two of you appear to be changing by leaps and bounds. You and your sweetie will be more in sync by your next birthday. AQUARIUS naturally points you down the correct path.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Your image is important, but dont make it a major preoccupation. You often are true to yourself and go out on a limb. You naturally take the lead in heartfelt causes. A loved one becomes more verbal and more interesting at the same time. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Reach out to someone close to you. This person has clout and understands you well. Do not underestimate the power that this person has. Remain open with a close associate or family member when trying to focus on what is happening in your life. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You have a lot on your mind. Do not underestimate the power of reworking your ideas. You will explore other concepts and paths later in the day with someone who also has a keen mind and unique ideas. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You might wonder what can be done to improve a changeable situation. A discussion with a close friend will open up the issue. You will discover new ways of approaching a matter more openly, which will allow greater ow for you. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You gain a greater sense of clarity because of your openness. You might hear many far-out ideas, but a lot of them have validity. Youll head in a new direction if you feel that it will benet you and others. Be ready for change and growth. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You deal with personal matters differently from how many people around you do. Just witness some of the reactions you get when you make a life change. You might be internalizing some of the comments you hear. Make yourself a higher priority. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) It will be hard to contain your playfulness right now. You might just want to let go. A situation that surrounds your personal life could experience some radical changes. Know that you arent losing control, youre just heading down a new path. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You could experience a radical change of pace. You might nd that you are most content at home with those closest to you. You probably need some time off for the same old pattern. Open up to a new way of thinking, but only after you have relaxed some. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You recognize the importance of having nancial clarity. You will get your message across to others in a subtle way. Make sure that you weigh the consequences of moving forward. Others have strong opinions. Respect everyones differences. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) You have been on a roll. Now you might want to rethink a decision more carefully. Share your thoughts with those whose feedback you respect. You will make an idea stronger. Touch base with someone who is a bit eccentric, and make plans to visit. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You might feel as if you want to retreat in the morning. This sentiment becomes foreign by the afternoon, when you want to be on center stage. Use your energy well. Know when to separate work and play, for your sake if nothing else. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You have a denite goal in mind that you might want to complete in the morning. Issues surface in the evening, and you cant seem to undo them fast enough. Know that the only problems you have are the ones you create. Flow with the moment. DailyCommercial.com | Friday, June 29, 2018 C5 TODAY IS FRIDAY, JUNE 29, the 180th day of 2018.
